Minor League Update: First Basemans

Brian Dopirak,Las Vegas 51's AAA: The 6'4" 225 pound right hander is struggling to hit for power for average. Dopirak has a horrible OPS(On Base+Slugging) of .646.Dopirak will not be with the Jays as a starter because they will have one of Baseball Americas top 50 prospect playing first base in Brett Wallace. If Dopirak can improve his average and find his power stroke once more he will be a September call up.

David Cooper, New Hampshire Fisher Cats AA: Cooper, like Dopirak is struggling all around except for one difference, Cooper found his power stroke. In his past 9 games David has 5 home runs and a slugging percentage of .686. in that week and a bit Cooper halved his season high of 10 home runs. Cooper will probably be traded or his positions will switch because Dopirak and Wallace are better than him.

The Toronto Blue Jays lost 2 out of 3 to the Rays from Monday through Wednesday due to some late inning struggles. The offence also struggled as they only scored 11 runs in the 3 games, as compared to the 15 or 16 they will usually score through that span.

First pitch tomorrow night at 7:07
Former Jay A.J Burnett(6-2,3.28) for the Bronx Bombers vs. Brett Cecil (5-2, 3.81) for your Blue jays.

Next off day I will be previewing the upcoming MLB draft through a mock first round. The Jays select 11th in the first round.
